At DanceArt Studio we offer Competitive dance for the dancer that wants to perform more on stage throughout the dance season and be committed to a dance team. Competitions are local in the Raleigh/Durham area. We do three a season along with a showcase prior to competition season and end with a final recital. Students perform up to 5 times during the dance season. We have teams that practice/train/rehearse once a week and for the student that wants to focus more on dance we have teams that can practice/train/rehearse up to 5 days a week.
The competitive teams vary with the level of commitment. You can be a part of a dance team and still only come once a week. However, we have teams that train young dancers on a more technical level and they come 3-5 times a week. We work with each family to get them familiar with our program and see what would be the best for for the dancer and dancer family. Commitment is important and being a part of a team is an extra expense and we like for families to feel comfortable with the decision made so that it fits everyone’s needs.
We have the following teams at DanceArt Studio: Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Clogging, Lyrical, Contemporary, & Musical Theater teams.
Dancers who compete at these regional competitions are students ranging in age from approximately five to eighteen years old. Dancers must continuously train to maintain and improve their technique, balance skills, strength and flexibility.
We encourage students to be positive and teach them more about the art of dance instead of dancing to win at competitions. It is not about the trophy but about the well rounded dancers we prepare for the world. Most of our team dancers excel in academics as well. Dance teaches them to be committed, disciplined, and how to work with a group. Our dancers leave our school more prepared for life since they spend hours being a part of team and teaching life skills about commitment.
At DanceArt Studio the director keeps the vision consistent when selecting instructors to work with our team dancers. All of our instructors believe in teaching our dancers to dance from within and it’s not to show off their bodies in a sexual way. Our costumes are classy and we teach our young dancers that the beauty of dance comes from the dance, the story, the choreography, and the energy they give on stage. (At DanceArt we do not put young bodies in skimpy costumes and our music is always age appropriate.) Dance is art and our school gives students an education about dance and to be strong dancers, performers, and well rounded individuals.
